The S.C. State Firefighters’ Association’s Leadership Institute is offered to individuals to improve and develop fire service leadership at the state level through networking and education pertaining to the many facets of the fire service profession.
Participation is not based on the criteria of rank or pay status but instead on the individual’s potential to impact future guidance for the Firefighters’ Association and South Carolina Fire Service.
Funding for the Leadership Institute is provided by the Firefighters’ Association and by donations from private entities such as the Pierce Corporation. This funding is designed to minimize the financial impact to participants through housing and meal provision.
